Wat is uw mening over het Wijzigingsbesluit verwijzingsportaal bankgegevens?
This change in the law would force banks to report all transactions over €100 to the state.
Monitoring honest citizens to this degree is not only a breach of privacy and a violation of property rights, but also a fatal blow to the trustworthiness of banks. The relationship between banks and their customers is based on trust and its my assessment that this law change will cause a large part of the population to potentially abandon the banking system altogether. After giving it some thought I personally find it hard to justify keeping more than an absolute minimum balance on my accounts and will start transacting exclusively in cash and coin. This is not a decision I want to make, but this will force my hand. Is forcing honest citizens to keep out really the way we want to go?
Overall I believe this law change is extremely dangerous and the consequences are opaque and it should not be passed without a strong national debate on which role the state should play in our banking system.
